    How do I totally turn off DrWeb on my Linux servers with Plesk 9.2?

    I have changed all of the settings to NO DrWeb that I can find in the Plesk control panel (email settings) and still it keeps trying to download files (which fails), ever 1 second on one server and less often on the other. I know this by reviewing /var/log/messages.

    example:
    /var/drweb/updates/drw50033.txt - drw50033.txt with such CRC32 already exists, downloading has been skipped
    Thousands of entries like this!

    I would like to stop this wasted server load. I do not need DrWeb, it is just problems. I have noticed the more I can turn it off, the better they run. I have never seen it stop anything, maybe it never works, or maybe my windows clients are already protected. I looks like DrWeb is the Virus!

    Thanks for any help.
    Brad

    You can just remove it with something like:

    rpm -e drweb-updater psa-drweb-configurator drweb-base drweb-daemon
